Katy Perry worked a whole new image at the VMA's over the weekend. I'm not a huge fan of the long extensions but I do like the way it's styled at the front and matched with a fab sultry eye makeup. It's very simple to get this look as long as you have the right tools but be careful not to over do it, the key word (as always) is blend!

Get Katy's Look

  • Moisturise and prime your skin, then even out skin tone with the foundation of your choice. It's quite a polished finish so powder down the T-Zone with a translucent powder that wont clog or cake, Jurlique's Rose Silk Finishing Powder (£24.50/$36) is my favourite.
  • Lightly contour cheeks with Mac Harmony (£17.50/ $20) blusher under your cheekbones, up to your ears and sweep a light dusting of Benefit Bella Bamba Blusher (£23/50/$28) over the apples of cheeks. Blend over edges with any clean dense brush for a softer, prettier look.
  • Mac Paint pots (£14.50/$18.50) are perfect for this eye makeup, they are extremely long lasting and blend beautifully. Apply Groundwork over the base with a flat brush then Constructivist on the outer part of the lid and blend blend blend with a good blending blush, Louise Young LY38B (£15/$NA) is perfect. Make sure to run it back and forth through the crease.
  • Apply a dark brown eyeliner thinly underneath and bring the Constructivist Paint Pot under your eyes using a brush with a small rounded head, Boots Smokey Eyeliner Brush is ideal. Make sure it meets up with the outer edge at the side.
  • Apple black gel liner close to the top lash line, without a flick. Revlon Colorstay Creme Gel Eyeliner  (£7.99/$9.99) is excellent and extremely long lasting.
  • Coat eyes with two coats of mascara. MAC Extended Play Lash Mascara (£14/$16) has a very thin brush and is ideal for getting right at the root of lower lashes. YSL Shocking Volume Effect (£23/$30) is great for full volume top lashes.
  • Fill in eyebrows where needed to get polished edges like Katy, Sisley eyebrow pencils (£31.50/$55) are excellent quality with a choice of four colours.
  • Part your hair at the side and put hair in large heated rollers going in backwards direction and staying within the parting.
  • Leave rollers in as long as possible and spray with hairspray while they are in the hair.
  • After removing, spray the front piece with a good hairspray where it lands, including the raised part at the top, then brush the rest of the hair through with a soft bristle brush like my favourite Denmans.
  • Spray hairspray into your hands and smooth over any flyaways at the top and side, I love Tresseme 24 Hour Body Finishing Spray (£5.39/$5.49)
